yes, jpg 12. I'll play around with 9-10 and look at the difference. I find the quality to be pretty sharp at max (3000%). Shot with a 50mm lens at 24MP. The images on the walls are blurry to begin with (contemporary photography and all....) look at the fake staircase and rail...
1) use TIFs for import to Panotour Pro.
2) JPG 8 is enough, 9 doesnÂ´t make a vital difference, 10 starts to increase load-time too much, 12 is nonsense.
have a look: www.360impressions.de
MKPTour - Tiffs (around 1,5 GB each equi) -->> JPG @8. Folder-size is about 160MB on the server.
The two deep-zoomable paintings are seperate panos in two seperate html folders. They also are JPG 8 settings.
Ckeck this also: around 700mpx each, around 1,5GB TIFF -->> JPG 8 setting. The folder is about 200MB on the server:http://360impressions.de/Lichtturm/
I wouldnÂ´t say the quality is too low using JPG 8 . . you need to make a compromise of quality/quantity. Being an advertising photographer i always see quality first -
but when the difference between 8 and 12 is rarely visible but better to uson the web i take 8.
DonÂ´t forget: browsers usually use sRGB for displaying - converting RGB to sRGB results in a greater loss in visual quality than the difference in using JPG 8 instead of 12 !
